Abstract: This report summarizes the analysis of reincarceration rates for adult offenders who were released from prisons, State jails, Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Facilities, In-Prison Therapeutic Community program, and Intermediate Sanction Facilities in fiscal years 2006 and 2007; and rearrest rates for adult offenders released from prisons and State jails in fiscal years 2005 and 2006. Included are summaries of reincarceration rates for juveniles released from the Texas Youth Commission (TYC) and incarceration rates for those supervised by juvenile probation departments in fiscal years 2006 and 2007, as well as rearrest rates for the fiscal years 2005 and 2006 juvenile cohorts. Also included is a review of recidivism information for other areas of the adult criminal and juvenile justice systems. Data were collected by the Criminal Justice Data Analysis Team within the Legislative Budget Board (LBB) on adult offenders released from Texas prisons, State jails, Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Facilities (SAFPFs), In-Prison Therapeutic Community (IPTC) program, and Intermediate Sanction Facilities (ISFs) during fiscal years 2006 and 2007. Each offender in the offender who was reincarcerated in either a State jail or prison facility at least once during the 3-year follow-up period was considered a recidivist.
